You're asking if anyone has done something to a 17 year old bike??!! Yeah, it's been done Extreme??, Just go look through the Chromeless Cruiser thread below, his bike is pretty extreme.

One thing you might try, adding a water cracker to make it run on hydrogen
The biggest problem you're going to run into is finding parts to do anything radical now. The aftermarket parts arena is drying up fast. You're going to have to fabricate a lot of your needed parts now where you could buy them ready to go 10 years ago

The options I can see are:
Dunlop American Elite
My clutch just started slipping on my 08 "F". It just turned over 55,000 last week. I bought it new in March of 2010. I was just wondering if this is fairly typical for the 1800s';
I read about clutches being replaced a lot on the forum so it seems like something that happens often enough. I...

As per the title of this thread....I have a '02 1800 S model that will not 'fire' unless the kickstand is up.
